Spicy Tripe and Beans


Completely different recipe than Jamaican or Spanish ones. I used few known methods to make beans easier to digest. They all work very well not to make music.

300 millilitres water
200 grams tripe
beef or veal, cut into strips, pre-cooked
150 grams beef soup bones
150 grams beans
dried, large, "handsome johnny"
3 grams kombu
dried, crushed
1 teaspoon cumin
black cumin also known as black caraway
1 teaspoon salt
1 medium onions
chopped finely
2 each garlic cloves
pressed or minced
50 grams green bell peppers
200 millilitres tomato purée (passata)
½ teaspoon thai chili paste
or spicy paprika paste, or harissa
2 teaspoons paprika
½ teaspoon savory
1 teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon pepperoni
1 x salt and black pepper
ground, to taste


1 - Rinse beans, pick out stones, cover with water, and soak for 12 to 14 hours, pour water out when done. 2 - Soak kombu seaweed for 2 to 3 hours in small amount of cold water. 3 - Pour 300 ml of water into a pressure cooker. Add beef bone, beans, tripe, black cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt, kombu with water, and cook for 17 minutes. Reduce steam and remove the bone.

Comment #1. Large beans like handsome johnny are normally cooked for 2 to 4 hours, and for 30 to 35 minutes in a pressure cooker. This method reduces time of cooking in a significant way.

4 - Fry onion and garlic in a pot for few minutes. Transfer all from the pressure cooker to the pot. Crush few beans using a fork. Add bell pepper, tomatoes and seasoning. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes over medium heat. Stir sometimes. The dish should thicken itself.

Comment #2. You may add less spicy ingredients because this dish is as hot as fire.
